The 2021 Oscar nominations are finally here, and while we’re thrilled that more women are finally being recognized, we couldn’t help but notice there were quite a few celebs and movies that were left off the list.

From Regina King to Rosamund Pike, keep reading for all the biggest Oscar snubs of 2021.

1. Regina King

King totally blew fans away with her stellar directional debut in Amazon Prime's One Night in Miami. Although it's great to see that the Academy is making moves to include more women in these categories (Emerald Fennell and Chloé Zhao made the cut for Best Director), King totally deserved to be among this group. And the internet agrees.

2. 'One Night in Miami'

Speaking of King's work, One Night in Miami is one of the best films of the year, hands down. Not only is it critically acclaimed, but also, the movie received three nominations at this year's Golden Globe Awards, including Best Director, Best Supporting Actor (Odom Jr.), and Best Original Song ("Speak Now").

3. Rosamund Pike

The internet's been buzzing about her dark comedy thriller, I Care A Lot, for what feels like forever. Plus, any fan who's seen the film would probably agree that Pike's performance is worthy of all the awards. Fortunately, she earned some recognition by snagging a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a motion picture, musical or comedy.


4. Alan S. Kim

We applaud the Academy for giving Minari multiple nominations, but they totally missed out on an opportunity to make history here. Alan S. Kim, the talented 8-year-old who played David in the film, could've been the youngest-ever Oscar nominee.

5. Zendaya

Okay, so maybe Malcolm & Marie was met with mixed critical reviews, but there's no denying Zendaya gave an award-worthy performance. The Emmy-winning actress totally deserved recognition for her role as Marie.

6. 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom'

Fans couldn't quit raving about the critically acclaimed film. It got nine NAACP Image Award nominations, eight Critics' Choice Movie Award nominations, three Screen Actors Guild Award nominations and two Golden Globes noms. Still, the movie unfortunately missed out on the Oscars' biggest category.
